All the Flavor, None of the Flour!

I love adding another amazing flourless cookie recipe to my baking arsenal. These 4-Ingredient Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies are chewy, dense, a little crisp on the inside and so, SO peanut butter-y. If you’re searching for a gluten-free peanut butter cookie, this one is about as simple and delicious as it gets. Four ingredients. That’s it. Easy Peasy. And not only are these cookies so simple, they are completely grain free — no wheat, no oats, no specialty gluten-free flours. Just peanut butter, sugar, vanilla extract and a large egg and you’re on your way to chewy, rich peanut butter cookies. Really, the only downside is you might have to make a second batch.

Wondering if you can substitute natural peanut butter for processed peanut butter? I’d say, yes, but with a few caveats. First, the texture of natural peanut butter is a bit on the runny side. Keep your natural peanut butter chilled as long as possible before adding it to your batter, and be sure to stir it really well before measuring. Secondly, if your natural peanut butter is unsalted, you might need to adjust the amount of salt in your baking. It’s certainly unsweetened, so the end product may not be as sweet as you expect, either. You’ll want to adjust the amount of sugar according to your tastes.

How to Make 4-Ingredient Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Preheat oven to 350°F. Then line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper or spray with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl, beat together the peanut butter, 1 cup sugar, egg and vanilla on medium speed until well combined.

Place 2 tablespoons sugar in a small bowl. Roll the dough into 1-tablespoon sized balls and then roll each ball in the sugar until completed coated. Place the coated balls of cookie dough a few inches apart on the prepared baking sheet.

Use a long fork to flatten each cookie dough ball slightly, then turn the fork going the opposite direction and flatten just slightly again. This will create the classic criss-cross pattern on the peanut butter cookies as they bake.

Bake for 8‐10 minutes, rotating cookie sheet halfway through the baking time. Let rest on the cookie sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
